A Work in Progress

Our 4H group is tackling a wood project. They are making this cute Jellybean Dispenser 
Last week they measured out their pieces on a board. Kirk cut out all the pieces literally at the last minute! 8 pm the night before! Ugh, I hate it when he does that.
Anyway, they sanded the pieces, drilled holes, and hammered the pieces together. They actually got farther along than I thought they would. I only had to remove about 5 bent nails. Pretty good for 17 kids.  Sometimes I think we are insane to think we can do a project like this, indoors (there was a freak snow-ice storm that day) but it worked out great! We have good moms helping the kids in this group.
Next time we will be painting the bases and attaching the jars. Check back in a couple weeks for the finished product.
